America's Fiscal and Economic Outlook: Where Do We Go From Here? Session 1

The Peter G. Peterson Foundation Economic Forum brings together thought leaders shaping the future of our nation for in-depth conversations on America’s most pressing issues.

With our economy in recovery, our debt rising unsustainably, and our nation still grappling with a devastating pandemic, America faces many critical questions for its future. Where do we go from here?

To help illuminate and improve the understanding of this critical moment, the Peterson Foundation has convened twelve leading experts with diverse views from across the political spectrum to share their views on the answer to this fundamental question. As we launched this new resource, two of the initiative’s authors joined us to share their creative and thoughtful solutions to help guide citizens and policymakers through this uniquely challenging time. A summary of their discussion is available here.
